Re: files won't pass md5 verification
a few things, since your fileset is a little 'junky' ...
1. you should be getting an md5 failure e-mail saying specifically what tracks are failing md5 check. are you? What tracks does it say?
2. you seem to have 3 md5's in there. just keep one. you have:
keep JUST this one: BTS2005-06-12.flac16/checksums.md5
since that doesn't have the # notes that md5summer puts at the top of the file. and you just need one md5. make sure it describes your full fileset (it looks like it does) and then move on.
3. outside of the show's file folder, you have loose these three files:
one is the first audio track, the other is the info text and the other is a junk md5. delete those three files from the top outside dir. all three are inside the folder already and don't need to be repeated.
so delete those three, delete the BTS2005-06-12.flac16/md5checksums.md5 that is inside that is a redundancy, and then fill out the 'file options' again to write fresh xml files.
4. the reason your show passes md5 on your HD and not on the archive servers is just that the files aren't fully up. 99% of the time the reason is that one track didn't fully upload. just re-queue the entire show and set it to 'resume' any tracks that aren't fully uploaded. chances are that it will 'fill in' the gaps on whatever track didn't fully make it up. when that is done, go to the contribution center and hit 'mark resolved' and that will be all it takes to re-que the show to check md5 again. if it passes, off it will go.
